Sometimes my emergency brake light stays on. I know the brake is off, I’m guessing it’s something with the sensor. Where is this located? Is it easy to get to and possibly replace/fix?

Thanks

yeah yeah I can't spell. typed it up to fast...

thanks i'll get that checked then, I was just thinking it was the sensor. After the car bumps around and drives a bit it goes off. Kinda weird.

either you have too little oil for your brakes or your sensor in the container has a contact problem.

The sensor for the oilbreakfluid is in the cap of the fluid container

I didn't know the hand brake used brake fluid, at least for the sensor to see if it's pulled or not. Does it use the normal brakes as the parking brakes? I wasn't sure if it has seprate or not.

I don't know, I'm a newb :sadwavey:

The "BRAKE" symbol on the dash has 2 uses. First is to tell you if the e-brake is on, which is a cable-driven drum brake setup. The second is to let you know if the main brake system (NOT e-brake), has low brake fluid. Check the fluid level in your brake master cylinder.

The hand break itself dont need oil.
But the switch in the handbreak and the break oil level sensor for your other brakes use the same light in the dash.

Yeah just needed a little bit of brake fluid... it was at the min level. machniac just gave me a little... If anything going there saved me buying brake fluid because he did it free hah

I guess I'll need to get my brake pads checked now to see where the fluid went?

My car always leaked between the tank that holds the fluid and the master cylinder itself. It just wobbled all around and sh!t like that. I didnt have to check my pads or anything like that. I put a master cylinder on it and the problem was solved.
